I drive a 14 F150, The reason....the back seat when folded up, accommodates my three big dogs better than the Ram or Chevy. In the real world most P/U owners dont haul cement blocks. Most P/U owners use it for daily commute and moving the occasional piece of furniture
Every vehicle has its strengths and weaknesses. I grew up in the rust belt and most C-10s, after a few years, had to have their rocker panels, cab corners & door bottoms replaced due to rust.
GM in the 70s tried to use aluminum bumper reinforcements to save weight in their passenger cars. Trouble was they bolted them to a steel bumper shocks, mix in some salt spray during the winter and after a few years the bumpers were literally falling off.
My next vehicle may be a GM product, then I will tell you how bad Fords are
yep the Mustang 2 was a great idea
